“If you love something set it free, if it comes back it’s meant to be”- my mother

This is a quote that will probably be in my brain forever. It is such a simple message that remains so true. Although normally when my mother spoke these wise words to me they were in regards to providing advice about conflicts with a friend or someone I was dating at the time, today I am going to relate it to my love of shopping.

Do you ever see something in a store and talk yourself out of buying it to then later regret it? This isn’t something that happens to me so often; if I walk away from a purchase I’ve usually accepted it by the time I’m out of the store. I recently made one exception when pondering over this nautical inspired button down. I wasn’t sure if I should buy it because I knew I wouldn’t be able to wear it until the weather was a lot warmer. When I buy something I wanna wear it right away. 

While trying to decide if I should buy the button down or not I thought of the wise words of my mother and put the blouse down. After leaving the store and arriving home I kept thinking of all the different ways I would style the button down, leading me to decide that I must go back to buy it. When I arrived back to the store just a few days later, they unfortunately were sold out and wouldn’t receive any others because it was on sale. I figured that I set it free and it just wasn’t meant to be.

A few weeks down the road I was visiting Quebec City and I stopped in at the store that sold the button down that I loved oh so much. To my great surprise, it was there, still on sale and in my size. I thought to myself once again of the wise words from my mama, picked up the button down and headed to the cash. It was meant to be.
